MILTON — Police in Milton say a 19-year-old woman has reported she was abducted from a check-cashing store and held captive for two days before she managed to jump into a stranger’s car at a fast-food drive-thru and plead for help.

KOMO-TV reported that the woman told investigators she was abducted Tuesday and escaped Thursday morning, when her alleged abductor went to a McDonald’s in Milton and she got out of the car and ran to safety. Milton Interim Police Chief Mark Langford says the stranger who helped her drove to a nearby post office and called 911.

Langford says police are still trying to sort out the relationship between the woman and the alleged abductor. Police say they’re looking for a 26-year-old man with a criminal history.
